Sculpteo: An App-Managed 3D Printing and Marketplace

Have you ever wanted to prototype an idea or build a model and had no idea where to begin? Sculpteo might be a great starting point. The 3D printing company promises to print high-quality 3D models quickly, easily and at affordable pricing.

Sculpteo openly discuss pricing and material options, promising a quick turnaround (days, not weeks) and offering tutorials and advice for realizing your creative vision. They cater their services to novices and professionals alike, allowing anyone to create a model with suggested software or upload their files to create prototypes.

Their design and printing app, the Sculpteo Design Maker, presents a fun interface and workflow to guide users in creating unique objects without the requirement of developing their own three-dimensional illustration from scratch. Sculpteo offers pre-prepared and customizable options such as the Me and You or Self-Portrait Vase, Pixel Cup and Rorschach-inspired Falbala Vase.

The App walks you through creation, purchasing, viewing designer and artists profiles and sharing your own products with others—seamlessly—within a single app experience.

Sculpteo helps artists and designers make their creations available to the public through hosted storefronts, showing final products and 3D views of their work. The marketplaces includes everything from useful products and cases, to decorative objects, models and toys dreamed up by designers. What will you make first?
